The reception isn't as far as it was with the 360 controllers.
I was chatting with a few people on Xbox one the other night and I was able to go about 25' and outside my home (real distance about 25 feet and through outside walls)...it worked fine, as I got out to about 30' it started to drop out a little.
I will admit, it's about 1/2 the range of the 360 controler...I was able run out to my car with a 360 controler and it's about 35-40' away from where the 360 is in the house, I had perfect connection with no drops at that range with the 360 contoller.
Yea, MS screwed up on this one, I wonder if there is a way to put a booster (maybe by opening it up ?) to exend the range if it is needed for some people....
STILL waiting for that Kinect cable....any new news ?
